Exceptionally smooth coffee in just 30 seconds
Want a rich, espresso-like coffee? Maybe you’re in the mood for iced coffee with an extra kick of flavor? How about a double shot espresso with coconut milk? Well, the AeroPress can do it all, and you can too with our easy to use AeroPress brewing guide!
Our guide uses the inverted method where you’ll measure everything upside down. This prevents the water from dripping through the cap into your mug before you’ve finished pouring!
Coffee: 16g or 1 AeroPress scoop
Water Temp: 185°F / 85°C
Brew ratio: Approx. 1:14
Brewing time: 1min 50secs
Digital kitchen scale
Pour the water into the kettle and bring to the boil. Set aside to cool.
While the water boils, prepare your AeroPress by inverting the brew chamber and inserting the plunger into it up to the number 4.
Set your prepared AeroPress upside down (flared side up) onto the kitchen scale. Now set aside and grind your coffee.
Using the AeroPress funnel, carefully add the grounds to the brew chamber and gently shake to level the bed. Remove the funnel and zero your scale.
Now, place your filter into the cap and wet thoroughly with your water and set aside.
To bloom the coffee, start your timer and add the water until the scale reads, or until the water level reaches the middle of the number 3 on the chamber.
Take the Aeropress paddle and stir your grounds in a circular motion for 10 seconds.
Now add more water until the scale reads 220g, or until the water level reaches the bottom edge of where the brewing chamber starts to flare.
Twist the cap on, remove the AeroPress from the scale, and remove the air pocket in the chamber by gently pushing down the sides of the brewing chamber until the liquide (usually a foam) just starts to bubble through the cap.
Flip the AeroPress onto your mug. At this point your timer should read 0:50. Let the coffee brew for 30 seconds.
Slowly and gently depress the plunger for 30 seconds until the timer reads 1:50. Keep one hand on your mug to prevent slipping!
Step 09. Swirl, smell, sip and enjoy!
Swirl the coffee and smell the delicious aroma. Sip your fresh brew and enjoy the moment.
